Milk Chocolate: Plain and simple? Not even close. While Dolfin's more intricate flavor pairings may garner more attention at first, this milk chocolate Neapolitan is about as flavorfully ornate as milk chocolate comes. The true essence of the superbly popular cocoa and milk combination is revealed in this smooth and sultry example of chocolate perfection. Relish it!
Dark Chocolate with Nougatine: The nougatine created by the artisans at Dolfin is unlike anything you have ever tasted. Countless incarnations using literally hundreds of varied blends were experimented with before finally achieving the flavorsome combination found in this ambrosial confection. Note the aroma that hits the nose first, highlighted by a nutty, almost buttery, quality. The initial flavor is of dark chocolate, with the bulk of the nougatine flavors being released only after the chocolate begins to melt in your mouth. It is a virtual pageant of scents and flavors.
Milk Chocolate with Nougatine: Sultry smooth milk chocolate blended with a rich cascade of nougatine flavors awaits you inside this deliciously delicate Neapolitan square. Truly delicious, but be sure to take your time with these (and all of the other) chocolate pieces. Sample it, bite by bite, and experience bliss as each morsel melts slowly in your mouth.
Dark Chocolate with Orange Peel: This isn't your ordinary orange-infused chocolate square. The folks at Dolfin are not content to use some artificial orangey flavor or even a genuine orange oil concentrate. This chocolate actually contains tiny pieces of crystallized orange peel, imparting a sweet yet slightly bitter flavor that sings in perfect harmony with the chorus of dark chocolate flavors. Yummy!
Milk Chocolate with Coffee: In addition to the quality of the coffee used, the milling of the beans provides the flavor keystone for this chocolate. The milling is fine enough to avoid large, cumbersome bits on the palate, but not so fine as to underwhelm the senses. With this carefully-achieved blend, the coffee taste is carefully spread out and not overpowered by the sweetness of the chocolate. Note the tiny chips of crystallized coffee bean as you enjoy this treat!
Dark Chocolate—70% Cocoa: Cocoa lovers, be prepared for a real indulgence. At 70% cocoa, this chocolate is a truly decadent extravagance. At these levels of cocoa content, the fun qualities of dark chocolate are revealed. As you likely are aware, what most mass-produced "chocolates" taste like has very little to do with authentic cocoa flavor. Thankfully, Dolfin chocolates provide genuine cocoa flavor to those who are lucky enough to indulge.
Dark Chocolate—88% Cocoa: Prepared for a cocoa overload? No such thing, we say. For the true chocolate lover, this exceptional example of dark chocolate with its astonishing 88% cocoa will wow you. It still manages to be remarkably palatable with a bittersweet character. Enjoy this piece of heaven when you're not in a rush. This is chocolate that must be savored. Enjoy it during a quiet moment with either a glass of very cold, dry white wine, or with a cup of full-bodied, black coffee. When eaten with the wine, the sharpness of the chocolate will come through ahead of the sweetness. With the coffee, you'll taste the sweetness first. These sorts of pairings are wonderful ways to turn your chocolate cravings into moments of cocoa refinement.
Dark Chocolate (52% Cocoa) with Fresh Ginger: This is one of the most unique flavors we've encountered in our chocolate-searching adventures. Ginger, regarded as the spice of life, comes together brilliantly in this sumptuous chocolate bar. It awakens the taste buds and is a great bar to cleanse the palate between deep dark chocolate flavors.
Dark Chocolate (52% Cocoa) with Aniseed: Another example of Dolfin’s skill at pairing fabulous Belgian chocolate with unique and unusual spices in order to add a little zest and provide the taster with a complex flavor mix. Enjoy the flavorful dashes of licorice and dark, mildly bitter, chocolate in this interesting and tasty treat!
Dark Chocolate (52% Cocoa) with Cardamom: Another Indian-spiced chocolate, expect characteristic cardamom notes of warm, lemony flavor. This is one you might want to keep around for Christmas time, as it makes a great holiday treat! From Scandinavia to India, this versatile spice is coveted in culinary delights the world over.
Milk Chocolate with Cinnamon: Cinnamon and milk chocolate? Not the most common of pairings, but it is often the uncommon that yield unique delights. This Neapolitan is a splendid example of this philosophy. The cinnamon has been perfectly powdered and ground to achieve a subtle flavor one doesn’t experience fully until the chocolate melts in the mouth. Try this piece with coffee spiced with nutmeg and light whipped cream. (Not too sweet a cream which will overpower the flavor of the chocolate.) Or, enjoy it with a slice of the seasonally available favorite, pumpkin pie.
Dark Chocolate with Cumin: "Excuse me?" You might be a bit stunned at the suggestion that cumin and dark chocolate belong together but try this and be convinced! The cumin flavors are restrained, allowing the dark chocolate to shine through, but with gentle spiciness and Far East flavorings. Another unique offering!
Dark Chocolate with Earl Grey Tea: Many companies have begun infusing their chocolates with tea, often with the incomparable Earl Grey. This Neapolitan contains fine bits of tea leaves, imparting a wonderfully flavorful, aromatic, slightly spicy quality that must be tasted to appreciate. So what are you waiting for? This chocolate is wonderful alongside a fresh cup of Earl Grey, steeped for 3-5 minutes and taken straight (cream or sweeteners can interfere with the true tea flavors).
We know you will enjoy these chocolates born of two brothers’ passion for chocolate and their exceptional chocolate-making acumen!
